The Chain Vs. The Independent

When it comes to fast food there are two schools of thought – those who frequent the massively popular fast food chains such as McDonalds, KFC and Subway, quick, cheap, and readily available. The other type of fast food is the so called ‘street food’ movement, food venders who set up their trucks and trailers, and skillets and grills at markets, festivals and street parties. They deliver ‘exciting, affordable, high-end food on the go.’ Although not as readily available as the high street fast food chains, street food vendors are worth looking out for.

  • British Street Food are strong advocates of street food.  They recently had their yearly award ceremony – You can check out the winners and much more on their website.

Best Fish & Chips 2012

Awarded by the prestegious “Fish and Chip Awards” 2012’s top prize went to Seniors FishBar near to Blackpool. Fitting we think, that it went to a traditional Fish & Chip shop in a seaside resort town. Nominations are open for 2013.


Best Indian Takeaway 2012

Awarded by Takeaway.com the 2012 gong went to Golden Spice of Cambridge. You may also want to keep an eye on the star studded British Curry Awards which take place this month.


Best Pizza Takeaway 2012

Papa.org has yet to announce its winner for 2012 but previous winners Pizzaface of Brighton and Lupa of London Bridge are both nominated again this year and must be frontrunners. Papa awards a number of awards accross a range of categories.


Best Thai Takeaway 2012 

This is not so much an award as the most consistently high rated Thai restaurant accross a number of platforms. Tahi Lagoon in Bedford rates between 4.6 and 5 stars accross all review sites we could find, thats as good as a gold medal we think. Check out the positive words at Tripadvisor.


Hygiene Ratings

  • UKplaces one of the first directory portals to display Health Ratings for all food industry businesses, be they farms, produce wholesalers, grocery stores, bars or restaurants. The ratings are enforced by the Food Standards Agency and are updated frequently. On each rating you can see the date the inspection was carried out and the rating given. Ratings are from 1* – Major Improvement Necessary to 5* – Very Good.
  • We believe it is important to make these ratings known to you, the customer. You deserve to know the cleanliness and safety of establishments which handle your food. This also encourages business owners to rectify any issues and strive to be as hygienic as possible. (If you don’t see a rating next to a food related business there is no data available.)
